Name Lenore Hamilton Started sewing at the age of 9 with my Mom. Started quilting in 1997.
I began sewing because my Mom did it and she enjoyed it and I thought it might be fun. I started quilting because I bought a new machine and the dealer had a beginning quilting class that looked interesting and I always thought quilting would be fun.
When I started quilting I did only tablerunners, baby and Lap sized quilts. Now I do any size. I like doing a variety of styles but my favorite type of fabric is batiks.
T-shirts quilts are my favorite.
No favorite person. Lots of people have influenced me at one time or another.
Bucket list includes doing a Judy Niemeyer and finishing all the project I have all the materials for at this time.
My favorite finished project is the quilt I made for my mother's 80th brithday. It has pictures from my mothers life on it.
I teach t-shirt quilt classes, bag classes, accessories classes and some other quilts classes.
Favorite part of teaching at QQ is the great people I get to work with and teach. It is always fun.
No guilds, bee or social clubs.
Other hobbies/interests--golfing, gardening, reading
I grew up in Evergreen Park and attended EPHS where I took every sewing class they had. I received a BS in Home Economics Education and an MEd in Home Economics from the University of Illinois. I taught Home Economics for 25 years teaching most areas of Home Economics.I have two beautiful quilting cats. They like to help whenever they can but especially like piecing and embroidery.
